RABBIT accepts poetry submissions during Submission Periods throughout the year.

RABBIT is currently accepting submissions of nonfiction poems for Issue 21: The Indigenous Issue, guest edited by Alison Whittaker. Alison is a Gomeroi woman from Gunnedah and Tamworth, north-western New South Wales, Australia, and the author of the stunning poetry collection Lemons in the Chicken Wire. For this issue of Rabbit, we are open to submissions by indigenous poets from any territory across the world.

Send 1 to 3 poems (short or long) through Rabbit’s submittable site. Please include in the cover letter of your submission:
• full contact details (postal address, email)
• 50-word bio, including brief details of your indigenous community, affiliation and/or nationhood
• a short (50-word max.) response to the following question: ‘How can poetry make community?’



RABBIT is a journal of nonfiction poetry. If you are concerned that your take on the ‘real world’ is slightly abstract, don’t worry–include a line or two to tell us why you categorise your poem as ‘nonfiction.’ We are very much open to poetry experiments!

RABBIT also publishes book reviews, essays and interviews with poets. The editors regularly solicit this material, but are open to expressions of interest.
We have a list of current titles available for review on the BOOKS FOR REVIEW page.
For essays and interviews, please contact to discuss possible topics and subjects.
